Outstanding music program receives special invitation

Distinguished Concerts International New York City (DCINY) announced today that Director Donalee Gorfer and Männerchor Liederkranz have been invited to participate in a performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony and Choral Fantasy on the DCINY Concert Series in New York City. This performance is planned to take place on Monday, December 3rd, 2018 in Isaac Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall. These outstanding musicians will join with other choristers to form the Distinguished Concerts Singers International, a choir of distinction. DCINY’s Artistic Director and Principal Conductor Jonathan Griffith will serve as conductor of the performance and clinician for the residency. 

Why the invitation was extended 

Dr. Jonathan Griffith, Artistic Director and Principal Conductor for DCINY states: “Männerchor Liederkranz received this invitation because of the quality and high level of musicianship demonstrated by the singers as well as the exceptional quality of their audition recording. 

It is quite an honor just to be invited to perform in New York. These wonderful musicians not only represent a high quality of music and education, but they also become ambassadors for the entire community. This is an event of extreme pride for everybody and deserving of the community’s recognition and support.” 

The singers will spend 5 days and 4 nights in New York City in preparation for their concert. “The singers will spend approximately 9-10 hours in rehearsals over the 5 day residency.” says Griffith. “Not all of the time is spent in rehearsals, since there is so much history and culture to see in New York City. However, the performance is the primary purpose for their visit to the city.” Members of the community are encouraged to give financial support in sending these singers to New York by contacting Norbert Lemermeyer via email at
